I worked at Rosetta full-time (less than an year)

Pros

-9-5 hours for employees that aren't being taken advantage of
-some genuinely nice people
-partially renovated space in hamilton

Cons

-0 senior leadership; too many cooks in the kitchen syndrome
-0 integration amongst all of the acquisitions they have undergone
-turnover is like nothing i've ever seen. 17 resignations in 2 months. for a very good reason
-the lack of culture is a joke, for an "ad agency" especially. feels more like a government run office than a creative shop.
-hr is very hands off. they often have your hr partner housed in a remote office, which feels contrary to the function
-will not be able to hold up to the new financial standards set forth by publicis without constantly having to lay off staff
-project management is a complete joke. they might as well eliminate the function entirely.
-i can go on and on.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I worked at Rosetta as an intern (more than an year)

    Pros

    Great learning environment. Incredibly intelligent team members. Laid back culture. Ton's of room for creativity.

    Cons

    Agency work can get overwhelming at times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep providing the support and mentoring of the younger talent in the agency. This collaborative and mutualistic growth pattern will allow the company to continue to dominate the industry.

    I worked at Rosetta full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Your peers (aka the ones who actually do the work) are likely to be intelligent, kind, engaging and inspiring. The offices are well-designed. And if you're on the junior side, the big names of the clients (though not necessarily the work itself) will bolster your resume. Also, because your boss is likely under qualified, you will learn a lot by default.

    Cons

    Your manager (or manager's manager) is likely to be unqualified for their job, lacking in morals/work ethics and uninterested in growing their team or seeing them succeed. This breeds insecurity, reinforces mediocrity, protects morally unscrupulous leaders and scares away the best talent. At Rosetta, being good at your job will eventually work against you as someone above you who is less talented and less hard working will become threatened and make your life miserable. HR is only interested in protecting the company--not the individuals being mistreated. Everyone I know who left Rosetta (either through termination or on their own) did MUCH better at their next job. Better title, better money, better situation in general. Take that to heart. It speaks volumes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a good look at the retention issues you have on the West Coast. They're symptomatic of some serious problems with the leadership you hire. Hold leadership accountable for the health of their departments. Question those who have run off entire groups of hard working people. Look into situations where employees who have been top performers for years and suddenly get put on a "PIP" once a new "Partner" comes on board. This is questionable behavior that leadership regularly gets away with on the West Coast. It's horribly damaging to the growth of the company and to morale. Plus it is a potentially a huge legal issue with regards to wrongful termination suits. If you're serious about changing this, audit those at Director level and above and give their underlings a safe place to feedback openly and honestly. Then take their feedback to heart when you hire the next batch of folks at that level.
